I apologize to everyone for the lack of activity. I'm not interested anymore in this package and I will abandon it. Anyone can feel free to take ownership and provide necessary fixes.

Hi all. I have try to build but failed even if i do the trick of blochl...

Blt4 have been patch on debian buster and they are to the 2.5.3+dfsg-4

Perhaps it is possible to upgrade the git from this ?

But this one says coming from blt2.4z

So ? hard ?

Many thanks.

Adding to my last comment: this package conflicts with blt. It should be marked accordingly in PKGBUILD.

The installation fails without freetype2 - please add it to the dependencies. Even with freetype2 installed, it can not find the header files, giving the error:

bltPictText.c:45:12: fatal error: ft2build.h: No such file or directory"

This is solved by adding the following line to the configure parameters in PKGBUILD:

--with-freetype2incdir=/usr/include/freetype2 \

Once this is solved, another error appears:

bltDataTablePsql.c:359:60: error: unknown type name ‘PGconn’

To solve this, two things need to be done:

1) Install postgresql-libs - this should be in the dependencies (or at least in makedepends - I don't know if it is needed after the build).

2) Create a prepare function as follows, in the PKGBUILD:

prepare() {
  cd ${srcdir}/${pkgname}
  sed -i '/#include <bltSwitch.h>/a #include <libpq-fe.h>' src/bltDataTablePsql.c

This solves the installation problem.

Please update the PKGBUILD. Thanks!

I've created updated version of blt package, however namcap suggested the following dependencies: libmariadbclient sqlite libxpm libxrandr libtiff libssh2 libjpeg-turbo I've added then, however I'm not sure they are needed.
